2. 1959: mag­ne­sium al­loy mis­siles now: Mi­crosoft Sur­face 2

Australian T3 - - TRAVEL -

Mag­ne­sium al­loy is a su­per-light­weight and crazily strong ma­te­rial, a combo that was put to good mil­i­tary use craft­ing air­craft fuse­lages, jet en­gines and mis­siles. Now it’s locked on to the con­sumer mar­ket, with Mi­crosoft’s “Va­porMg” process us­ing it to form the Sur­face’s rugged chas­sis. $529, mi­crosoft.com/en-au
